What it is, isn’t really clear!
Consider me absolutely floored by this article on Sarah Palin, appearing in the Liberal Temple of Orthodoxy, the New York Times. It’s actually a fair assessment of something that Sarah Palin said that was neither remarked upon by Liberal Media, nor by the Conservative Media.
“Strangely, she was saying things that liberals might like, if not for Ms. Palin’s having said them.
“This is not the capitalism of free men and free markets, of innovation and hard work and ethics, of sacrifice and of risk,” she said of the crony variety. She added: “It’s the collusion of big government and big business and big finance to the detriment of all the rest — to the little guys. It’s a slap in the face to our small business owners — the true entrepreneurs, the job creators accounting for 70 percent of the jobs in America.”
As the author of the op-ed, Anand Giridharadas, asked, “Is there a hint of a political breakthrough hiding in there?”
Then again, he could be out of a job next week.
Apparently the NYT locked out the article soon after it was published (and after I read it). Another way that I have found to access this article is to link to the Alaska Dispatch here: http://www.alaskadispatch.com/article/pigs-do-fly-new-york-times-publishes-column-praising-palins-speech
…and click on the link imbedded in the article.
